Testimonials

One of my favorite aspects of creating paintings is how is connects me to others. I believe that the art comes through me, but is not for me. It is for you. Hearing how my art touches and adds to your life is the ultimate compliment and the reason I continue to paint. Below are the beautiful words of some of my clients. Email me if you would like to share your own experience.

"Carolyn, thank you so much for creating such a beautiful custom painting for our home. It’s amazing to find someone so talented who is also so approachable.

Art is not our language, but you listened so carefully to us describe what we love about your work, then used that information to create a perfectly inspired piece. You went above and beyond to make the commission process enjoyable, starting with a home visit so our space could inform your canvas size and color choices, and then giving us options and working closely with us to continue developing the parts of the painting we loved most.

We will cherish this painting and the memories of working with you, from discussing teal over champagne to watching the final brush strokes via Facetime. An incredible experience, with truly magical results. Thank you."

"Veiled Mystique 2 is bringing us such joy. Thank you, again, for creating it. The mood of it really changes depending on the lighting, which I adore.


Sometimes I feel as though I'm entering a street fair revelry, other times it's a voyeuristic late night at the end of a party with the promise of mystery and a tete-a-tete."

"So excited to hang my new Carolyn Mackin original painting in our kitchen--it was so much fun collaborating with her as a personal friend and incredibly talented local artist to figure out the right colors and textures to bring the room together. I named it "Urban Oasis" for her because of the contrast between the vibrant modern cityscape portrayed on canvas and the serene, natural pond views out our windows. If you're looking to add some life and color to your home, definitely check out her website at www.carolynmackin.com! She sends her paintings to buyers all over the world, so you don't need to be here in Boston to enjoy and appreciate her artwork in your home or office."

"I was so excited by your painting I made a special trip to NH to mount it. Initially, I thought it would go perfectly above the bed in the master bedroom. But then when I tried it in the great room, I was blown away. The size is perfect. When I put it against my fabric, the greens in the piece became front and center.

Then, to my great astonishment, when I turned on the chandelier, the metallic accents leaped out at me as if they had caught fire!!  I didn't even see them before!  My chandelier is made of iron with bronze accents, and it brought a whole new dimension to the piece.  Your painting pulled together every aspect of the home - the wood, the metal, the flow of the water in the lake, the colors of the water.

The photos don't do it justice. Thank you, Carolyn, for creating something that speaks to me on so many levels."

-Christin, Wellesley, MA

"I received my paintings today and just wanted to let you know how amazing I think they are! Everything arrived in perfect shape and my daughters also loved them! They are also "fighting over" which one will go in their room, etc... Thank you again for this wonderful offering."
